Everyday Life Weeks Seven & Eight

WEEK 7

February 12th

We spent an exhausting day at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh.  Liam was seen by the cardiologist, the doctor at the Down Syndrome Center, and the feeding team.  We celebrated getting out of there with dinner at Taco Bell! Dylan, Lexie, Lily, and my parents were waiting for us when we got home.

I spent the morning at home.  That afternoon, I dropped Lily and Liam off at Grant's mom's house so I could go to Lexie's Valentine's Day Party at school.  It was a bit rough, because the head parent didn't show up, so we had to make do with a lack of supplies.  I had a fun time with Lexie!  That evening, I helped Dylan make a box for his valentines.

WEEK 8

February 19th

Liam had OT in the morning.  At lunchtime, Grant and I picked Dylan up from school and took him to the dermatologist. He had to get a mole removed.  It was a quick procedure and Dylan was SO brave!  We rewarded him with a trip to McDonald's, stopped at Lowe's, and headed home.

Dylan stayed home from school to heal.  Grant drove Lexie to school, and I watched Charlie and Logan for a few hours.  After Lexie got home from school, I took her birthday outfit shopping.  We had a great time together!  When we returned, our friends were here with pizza.
